Physicochemical examination and quality assessment of groundwater (Hand-Pump) around Patna main town, Bihar state, India

Abstract

Groundwater samples from hand pipes were collected from six different locations situated in Patna town and analyzed during December 2010 to February 2011. Ten physicochemical parameters were analyzed and the results were compared with water quality standards prescribed by ISI 10500-91, WHO and CPHEEO In the present study, two water samples showed high EC, two water samples had high pH, one water sample had border-line turbidity, three sample showed high TA, two sample revealed high TH values indicating poor water quality and beyond maximum acceptable limit.
